Somebody bought a copy of this postcard today. Highway 141 is an amazing drive. It starts not far from Grand Junction and travels through spectacular canyons to Gateway, and then beyond, to Nucla, Naturita, and points south.
The photo on the card was taken at Gateway. A pioneer ranch cabin sits beside the curving road with a magnificent butte, The Palisade, looming in the distance.
The Gateway Canyons Resort is located near this spot. The resort includes two fantastic restaurants as well as facilities for events, getaways, and all-season adventures. If you love automotive history, don’t miss one of the best auto museums anywhere. It is on the property.
We’ve been out hiking in the countryside all week. The autumn weather has been absolutely spectacular. We took a day off to rest. My husband has been building a model of a Santa Fe sand house while watching football. I attended a seminar on blogging and was inspired to post again.
I’ve been taking digital photos and submitting them to microstock sites for several years now. I enjoy taking a break from my office to get outdoors and hike with my husband. The pictures help me relive great trips we’ve taken together, so my portfolios feature pictures of western Colorado.
There are also shots of southern California, since my mother still lives there, and Utah, since it is a spectacular springtime destination and is not far from Grand Junction.
Sometimes, people ask me for a compilation of my stock photos online. Here are the main sites where I have portfolios. Shutterstock requires a subscription, but the others do not. If you have special needs, email me and I can set up a lightbox for you. I also have thousands of additional shots, some at higher resolutions, stored on my drives. Let me know what you need, and I’ll take a look.
Here’s the list:
Stock Photography by Linda Armstrong Bigstock (This was my first site. It contains some older shots the others do not include, as well as the new ones.) Dreamstime Shutterstock (This is one of my largest portfolios.) Istock Veer (This is my newest portfolio. This beautiful site is just getting started. Take a look.) Featurepics (smallest portfolio)
